Fall Fair was a Blast & Door Prize Winner!

Well I have to say, I find it hard to believe that the Queen's County Fair has come and gone. The days sure do fly by! I had so much fun, demonstrating Stampin' Up!, at the fair. And I met such wonderful people! Everyone seemed to really enjoy the quick cards and techniques I demonstrated. I booked a few workshops and quite a few folks signed up for my newsletters so that's exciting! I LOVE meeting new people through my workshops and I'm looking forward to seeing these folks again soon. I am going to be in Miramachi, Sussex Corner and Gagetown over the next few weeks, for workshops, so contact me if you'd like to attend or host your own workshop! (Not only is it a great time, but you'll also earn FREE stamps and product!!).

I had a great door prize basket at the fair, FULL of goodies! Stamped cards, candles, gifts, chocolate, a FREE class coupon, etc. The door prize winner went to THERESE BOURQUE! Yay! Therese also booked a workshop and I just know we're going to have a super good time!!!


I'm still learning how to operate my new camera that my sweet hubby gave to me for my birthday, so stand by while I learn all the settings! LOL That being said, here's a (fuzzy) photo of our new friends - and door prize winner - Therese and her husband, Roger.


Here, in no particular order, are some photos from the fair:





I demonstrated the 'Poppin' Pastel' technique and it always received some "WOW's" from my audience. Easy but truly a stunning way to add color to images. I'll post a tutorial soon!

The color spritzing tool always gets raves reviews too!


A journal I altered using Stampin' Up! fabric, tinsel trim, buttons, stamps, glass glitter, designer series paper, and gold embossing. This will be "Our Christmas Traditions" book and I'll fill it with just that - traditions from both our families, memories, favorite Christmas recipes, photos, etc.


This candle was part of the door prize I gave away.

LOVE the horses!






Russell took a photo of me watching the horse & rider trials.



I'd never seen this before...the riders (young ones) would ride to a small post in the ground, dismount, put their nose to the post (which looks like a baseball bat stuck in the dirt) and run around and around and around and around. Once thoroughly DIZZY they had to TRY to mount their horses and ride back. It was HILARIOUS!

We had a really good time and the weather was GORGEOUS!

Even Rosey enjoyed the scenic drive to the fair!


From our house to Gagetown, we drive along the Saint John River. Doesn't get much prettier - the scenery here ALWAYS takes my breath away. Especially this time of year, with the leaves turning colors. Of course, apples are for sale along the highway, so we've been enjoying crunching on those during the drive.


Speaking of apples, who ever heard of a BLUE candy apple? Russell surprised me with this and I'm saving it. I LOVE candy apples!

Have a great day and HAPPY STAMPING!
